The production is designed by Rob Howell, with choreography by Peter Darling, orchestrations, additional music and musical supervision by Christopher Nightingale, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, sound by Simon Baker and special effects and illusions by Paul Kieve.

Matilda The Musical is produced in the West End by the Royal Shakespeare Company with Denise Wood, lead producer, and André Ptaszynski, as executive producer.
